Warrior Idolatry

Good point, Joe, and I'll continue to consider my position on the draft. From my perspective, it's the only way to temper the American people's erroneous war lust. We all have been pickled in the glory of our Grandfather's great WW2 victory and their valiant stand when the future of the world was uncertain. That proud moment in our American history has been very cleverly used against us, and today, our insistence to "Honor our Troops" only encourages this whole rotten cycle, where our boys volunteer to serve and defend our nation and constitution, and instead, are used to further aggressive invasions and ruthless occupations of sovereign nations. Pointless, self-defeating, and Not at all what they signed up to do. I see the draft correcting this situation pronto

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
